he biggest question facing the obama administration. >> i want to take one for the team and ask a big question. did the president know she was lip syncing and does he care? >> i have not had the discussion with him. i don't know that i understand the variety and contradictory reports on the matter and i would refer you to j-sick or pick. >> jennifer: that refers to the committees that organize the inauguration. bill press did follow up with a more pointed question, and jay carney danced around it and similar questions from other reporters. unfortunately we may never know what happened on that stage with beyonce and whether she lip synced. check us out on line at current.com/thewarroom website. thanks so you all joining us here in "the war room." >> cenk: welcome to "the young turks." we have a great show ahead for you tonight. secretary of state hillary clinton went up the hill and the republicans were aggressive and hot style. get a look. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables fr

this earlier today. what's your take on the obama administration's signal here to the bankers? >> in a sense it's an amazing political pick in that the obama administration is banking on the idea that the elite media and politicians will see the word prosecutor in mary jo white's resume and say that means she must be tough on crime forget that she hasn't been a prosecutor for a decade and has been defending the biggest most powerful wall street c.e.o.'s in the country. politically, it's banking on voters, on the elite media simply not knowing who she really is. i think as a citizen as somebody concerned with the fact that the administration hasn't prosecuted a single wall street banker connected to the financial crisis, i think this is a terrible pick. i think wall street is celebrating right now saying the person who's in in the s.c.c. looks like she's going to get tough on us, but we know she has a record of defending our interest. >> >> cenk: the new york times explains she's not going to face much opposition from the republicans. >> shocking. >> cenk: michael david and i are clear on this.
